Tell it like you want it to be.

 I was recently asked how it is I’m so confident in what I do. And I guess maybe I do come across, at least sometimes, as outgoing and confident. News flash…I’m not. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Fake it until you make it!” Yea, I think that’s sort of what I do. My feeling is that if you believe in something or you really, really want something, then you just have to suck up any discomfort around that thing and just plain go for it. Which brings me to an Abraham-Hicks quote from earlier this week (of course it does right?).
“We practice the Art of Allowing. Which means reaching for the thought that feels best, not the thought that is the real thought, not the thought that is telling it like it is. Telling it like it is only holds you where it is: ‘Damn it, I’m going to tell it like it is. I’m going to tell it like it is, because everybody wants me to tell it like it is.’ Tell it like it is if you like it like it is. But if you don’t like it like it is, then don’t tell it like it is—tell it like you want it to be. If you tell it like you want it to be long enough, you will begin to feel it like you want it to be. And when you feel it like you want it to be, it be’s like you want it to be.”

Yesterday in a class I’m taking we were asked to make videos of ourselves explaining what we do. In my case, Animal Communication and Shamanism. And yes, I know those sound very weird to a lot of people. I get it. The funny thing is, the discomfort around the assignment was NOT about telling people what I do. I truly believe in what I do and actually LOVE what I do. The discomfort around the assignment COMPLETELY came from having to video tape myself! I am EXTREMELY uncomfortable seeing myself in plain old photos. Now I’m supposed to tape myself actually talking?! Yikes. So as my teacher was explaining this assignment, in my head, I started telling it like it is: “I hate seeing myself in photos or videos! I look so stupid! My voice sounds awful! I look like an idiot!”
But then later last night I thought about the quote above. What if I just told it like I wanted it to be? “I look great on a video! This is fun! I can just be myself. I will do many more videos like this and post them all over youtube! These videos will help me get the word out about AC and Shamanism!” And then I just did it. I picked up my phone and sat down in a chair. No makeup, no nice clothes, no script in front of me. And I told it like I wanted it to be.
Don’t tell it like it is…unless is is awesome.
In Munay…
